Turn the Tables on the Postal Unions

Tea Party Mail

Credit: TheTeaParty.net

The postal workers’ unions are such cards, they ought to be dealt with.

The Daily Caller reports that postal-union workers have flooded the offices of TheTeaParty.net with more than 100 pounds of mail, simply because the Tea Party group advocates reforming the Postal Service:

Donna Wiesner Keene of TheTeaParty.net told The Daily Caller the group receives its mail weekly, and that the onslaught so far has spanned two weeks. The first week, she said the union workers sent approximately 700 letters and delivered them in a box weighing 57 pounds.

Then, this week, Keene said the workers doubled down on their efforts, bringing the total weight of the mail her group received to over 110 pounds.

Ah, the merry pranksters at the Post Office unions.  They think it’s all fun and games, but if Fester were in charge, they’d soon learn a lesson.  In Fester’s world, the Tea Party folks would print thousands of damn colorful “Return to Sender” labels, affix them to the letters, and drop them off at mailboxes and post offices all around town.

But these labels wouldn’t just say “Return to Sender.”  They’d include other helpful verbiage like:  ”This needless burden brought to you by your useless union” and “Your union is wasting your time with this bogus letter” and “Your childish union is making you look bad.”  Stuff like that.  Then the letter would pass from hand to hand, at virtually no cost to the Tea Party folks, spreading the word all down the postal-worker line.  Basically, the union members would be paying for their own bad publicity.

    This is like that movie It’s a Wonderful Christmas Story where Kris Krispie’s public defender tells the reindeer that they can’t land the sleigh in Central Park because that kid was left home alone for Christmas and so all the mail has to be delivered by the postal workers to Santa’s workshop, but only after the bogeymen get hired by Mr. Gimbel and Mr. Macy to sell Red Ryder B.B. guns to kids who drink Hershey’s chocolate syrup and don’t believe in Santa Claus.

    Rumors are flying around that the Pstal Service is going to be sold to AARP and Health Net. Any truth to this?
